WE and KJW

Hi
I was wondering if anyone here knows if KJW Glock magazines will fit a WE G17. I have a old KJW Glock that I don't use and have 3 extra magazines, and I recently decided to try the WE Glock 17 even though iv heard all the bad stories, I just had to see for myself. I received the magazines for the WE 17 yesterday but not the gun yet. The magazines look very similar, the only difference I can tell is that the WE magazines are a little bigger, length wise? Any input would be great.
Thanks

KJW Glock 23 would correspond to WE G19, whilst the KJW Glock 27 would correspond to the WE G26 (just released). KJW doesn't currently have a gun in production that would correspond to the G17. You may be able to use parts from the KJW mags, but the KJS G23 mags would be too short by about an inch, if you have the G27, they would be way too short.

Currently, WE makes the following Glocks:

G17
G18C (full auto)
G19
G23F (full auto)
G26
G26C (full auto)
G26 Advanced

Finding them is somewhat tricky as some HK sellers have certain models but not others. All of them are Marui/KJW compatible so will take aftermarket parts designed for the Marui Glock.

I would suggest checking out RSOV.com, Ebairsoft.com, and some of the other HK retailers listed in the retail section. Most of them carry the WE Glocks as well as aftermarket components made by Element and 5KU.

texx sums it up well. one thing i would like to point out (shouldnt be a problem) is that WE glock 17 mags have a extruding tab on the back of the mag, the kjws do not
